3 Real Takeaways from Hulu's Fake Peek Into Residence Life

“Our lives could be a TV show.”

hulu-ra-adI was able to get a “sneak peek” at Hulu’s new original series “Resident Advisors” before it came out.  (Check out Klout which gives you freebies and perks according to your level of influence on social media.)  After watching the first episode, here are my initial thoughts:
  1. It’s not that funny.  I struggled to make it past 10 minutes of the first episode.
  2. It really has nothing to do with being a RA and it doesn’t care (not that I think it should).  Residence life is merely the setting. This could be any aspect of college life in the overdone “college movie” genre… swap greek life for residence life… an off campus apartment for a residence hall room… have it take place during spring break… etc.
  3. There *may be the opportunity for some video clips to use in RA training, although the parody is so over the top, it may be minimal.
  4. This series isn’t likely to last past the first season.
In my opinion, that pretty much sums up everything you need to know.
I also wanted to share this blog post from the always-thoughtful and thought provoking Amma Marfo.  Here’s her take:
